This beautiful and ancient white popcorn produces two to three, 4-6 inches long ears per stalk. It was originally found in a pottery container dated to be 600 to 1000 years old. This pot was found in the Burro Mountains of Grant County, New Mexico in the 1960s/1970s by Frank Tatsch and was originally grown out by him. The popcorn is believed to be descended from an ancient highland popcorn indigenous to Mexico called Palomero Tolequeno. This Palomero popcorn is nearly extinct and was used in Aztec rain and war ceremonies and is one of the ancestors to almost all of our popcorn in the United States and this Burro Mountain is a strain grown in the Burro Mountains centuries ago and was considered once extinct until its discovery in the pot. This is its first time being offered anywhere and the original seed stock came from corn collector and Seeds of Preservation Independence (SOPI) President, Stephen Smith of Kentucky.
